As a reminder, if you are unable to attend this meeting, be sure to fill out a Proxy Form and submit it to me at [email protected]. Proxies are due one hour before the start of the credentials meeting on Saturday, January 20th; it is recommended that you submit your proxy by 12:00 PM EST on the 20th to ensure your proxy is considered by the committee. The Proxy Form is available here. Only voting members of the National Committee are eligible to submit Proxy Vote Forms.
Per a previous change in our Constitution and Bylaws, you may now submit a proxy electronically without a notary. If submitting electronically, the form must come from the proxy grantor's email address on file with the YDA Secretary, as the Credentials Committee will not and can not accept Proxy Vote Forms from other email addresses or third parties. Feel to reach out to me at [email protected] if you have any question or concerns with what contact information I have on file.
